Another year has come and almost gone. 2016 has been another big year for me personally and the team. We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Roll on 2017.
Do you know a designer and need help deciding what gifts to get for Christmas this year? Following is a list of some of the books I would love to see under the tree (my amazon list has 50 plus more...). Ranging from just the informative and interesting to the downright bloody gorgeous, and any graphic fiend should be lucky to own some or all of these inspiring tomes. 40 Days Of Dating - Timothy Goodman & Jessica Walsh Take a guy with some emotional issues and an aversion to commitments that last longer than a couple of months, pair him with a girl [...]
I'm going to start by saying I am relatively new to the city of London, that is, I started working here quite recently. Being immediately hit by the enormously fast-paced nature of literally everything in the city, I adopted a 'say yes to...everything' attitude. This mind-set has seen me turn up at a designers' BBQ wedged between two closely spaced city walls, gazing across the city over a few bevvies up the Shard and having a picnic of risotto on the banks of the Thames within the first week, to name a few. As is the style with last minute plans, I was [...]
As of the 1st of October, SESOME agency turned three! Reaching this milestone has prompted me to reflect on the most salient lessons I’ve learnt since that fateful day in 2013... Almost exactly three years ago, I did two (potentially) stupid things simultaneously! 1. Set up my own business (that could be a number of future blog posts alone!) 2. Made that business an agency, having never worked in an agency before After 14 years working client side, running international teams, managing an in-house team, internal suppliers and multiple agencies around the world, I thought it was time to do [...]
Our Top Tips for Horticultural Success at Work If there's one surefire way to brighten up an office space, it's getting a plant. Or painting the wall luminous pink, but hey, not everyone is as daring as we are. Perched amongst the hard surfaces of laptops, monitors and plug sockets, our little herbaceous friends quietly emanate good vibes, positive energy and oxygen into the working environment, effortlessly transforming cold, sterile spaces into homely havens. Here at SESOME, we couldn't imagine life without our leafy pals, but looking after them hasn't always been plain sailing.... Here are some handy hints and [...]
We've long been speculating about the eagerly-awaited opening of the new Tate Modern - as one of our favourite London galleries, the news that it was getting a face-lift was met with much excitement. The project was introduced to increase the Tate's capacity, and is the world's 'first gallery space dedicated to live art, film and installations', in the form of a twisting chimney structure on top of the gallery's existing 'The Tanks' space. So, like the curious cats we are, on June 17th we sent our most artistic team member (graphic designer Gabby) to check it out. Here are [...]
Here in the SESOME office, we are no strangers to a slice of fine dining. We can regularly be found under a mound of Domino's pizza, and we know the local Sainsburys salad bar like the back of our collective hand. However, amongst the lunchtime meal deals and endless packets of chocolate digestives, we still manage to spend a lot of time in London's newest, quirkiest and tastiest eateries. Because there ain't no dinner party like a SESOME dinner party, we've had a quick office whip-round for the team's top London restaurant picks and recommendations. You're welcome!

It's no secret that London is a cultural powerhouse, with innovative galleries, world-class museums and weird and wacky happenings every day of the week.
